        Answer

        Hi Osman- This is Sue at GE Appliances. We can certainly understand your concern and glad to help. 3-4 hours would not be considered normal. Make sure the Time Dry setting is not set to Air Fluff (No Heat). You can change the temperature of your dry cycle. Choose Medium or High for permanent press and regular to heavy cottons. For reference, see page 7 of the Owner's Manual: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90370-1.pdf - If the cycle selection is appropriate, the vent system may need to be checked. We suggest to view the following troubleshooting link for details: http://products.geappliances.com/appliance/gea-support-search-content?contentId=18058 - We hope this is helpful. Keep in touch!

      We don't have a vent in the boiler room where the washer and dryer go. We are thinking we could run a hose or duct from that room and out the bedroom window without having actual ductwork installed through the walls, etc. Would this be feasable?   (1 Answer)

        Hi- This is Sue at GE Appliances. The energy cost of gas and electric dryers depends on many variables, such as: •The washer's ability to remove water from the clothes. •Type and size of load •How dryer is used (timed dry vs sensor dry). •Efficiency of the dryer (Ex. Is the lint filter and ducting clean?). •Local gas and electric rates. Dryers are exempted from energy labeling because of the many variables that affect energy use and cost. For information about the approximate energy cost for a gas and/or electric dryer, contact your local utility company for your rates. Many utility companies may also be able to provide guidance on which would be less expensive to run in your area. Here are the Power Ratings: (Volts/Watts/Amps) 240V, 5600W, 24A, 60Hz. Thanks for checking with us!
